My issue is as follows. For the past week or so my computer has begun hanging, becoming very slow and now for the past few days a complete computer freeze, nothing responds at all no matter how long i wait.
I turn on my computer, wait tediously for a few minutes for everything to load up even though i have turned off a lot of the start up programs (msn etc). I click on a program and then boom, my computer doesn't respond again. I have restarted it at least 30-40 times in normal AND (what im in now) safe mode, and yes even safe mode crashes if i click the wrong program (which can be any program...as i said its very random).
Its been getting kinda crazy, im not exactly a computer wizz but i consider myself a intermediate going-on-advanced computer guy. I've done everything i can to try and get rid of the most likely cause, viruses and other misalliance infestations.
Ive used Ad-Aware and Spybot, both say my computer is clean.
Ive had this Dell Dimension 4600 for over 2 years now and there have been a lot of issues...but this is by far the worst and most annoying.
If you would like specs or anything else it'll be gladly replying with the relevent information.
